The irony of the title is amazing, as what Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson teach in their Revelation video series is the false, futuristic explanations; which were created by the enemy in the 16th century to deflect blame away from the antichrist beast Popes.
Revelation is a coded war manual, which uses symbolic language to point to a literal fulfillment, to hide the explanation from those who should not understand it. Read Revelation Is Symbolic And Literal
Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson take it very literally, causing them to not see the historical fulfillment of most of Revelation during the last 1,900 years.
Revelation has four chronological layers, each which span from when the apocalyptic vision was written until Messiah returns. Reading it as one chronological narrative, like Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson do, causes them to not see how the layers interact and give the whole explanation.

Dalton Thomas is correct, Revelation is not as complicated as you think. It’s the false, futuristic explanations which came from the Jesuits in Rome which cloud people’s perspective.
Dalton Thomas says that Revelation is very simple to understand, if you come with the right perspective.
He’s right, but his explanation about the fulfillment of Revelation is off-target. Revelation prophecy fulfillment is fairly straight-forward. It’s all of the futuristic deceptions of the enemy that make it hard to see the truth of the fulfillment.
The enemy has programmed believers to look to the future for the fulfillment, as most prophecy teachers say that all of the Revelation seals, trumpets and bowls take place in the end-times. This is called futurism.
I’ve created many summary PDF’s to help people see the big picture of the fulfillment of Revelation. Read Revelation Summaries
Dalton Thomas says the problem is that we bring our humanism, intellectualism, pride, arrogance, that cloud the message.
His explanations are clouded, as they’re based on the false futuristic explanations that were created by the Jesuits in the 16th century, to deflect blame away from the Pope, as the Protestant Reformers all proclaimed the historical fulfillment of Revelation and that the office of the papacy, the Popes, fulfill prophecy as the ‘little horn’ of Daniel 7, the ‘son of perdition’ of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the ‘antichrist beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome?
What does that say about Dalton’s humanism, intellectualism, pride and arrogance?
Dalton Thomas says that his goal is that you understand Revelation so that you don’t need a guide.
My goal in teaching the historical fulfillment of most of the prophecies in Revelation during the last 1,900 years, is to help people identify false prophecy teachers like Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson. They seem to be very sincere people who love Messiah, but they’re explanations are woeful!
This is why I created a Revelation fulfillment series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLY8Cq8enpfGfD_9b9cfcgCWhdYWUNNZq7
And wrote Bible prophecy fulfillment books: https://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/bible-prophecy-fulfillment-books/
Dalton Thomas points to Revelation 2-3 as churches then he says it points to messiah being actively involved.
Revelation 2-3 point to seven church eras which span from the first century until Messiah’s return. We can see the interaction of them with the three phases of the Roman beast kingdom which is described in Revelation 12-13. And we can see their relationship with the seal, trumpet and vial judgments.
Dalton Thomas says Revelation 6-22 details the great tribulation.
The seal judgments point to the decline of the pagan Western Roman Empire. The trumpet judgments point to the fall of the three parts of the Roman Empire: West, Central and Eastern. The vial judgments are against Catholics and the antichrist beast Popes of Rome.

Dalton Thomas says that if you think that the seals and trumpets have been fulfilled in history, you’re in la la land as they have not happened yet.
These arrogant, misguided statements are what causes me to make posts like this, to expose the false explanations of Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson.
Do you realize that Revelation starts with Messiah proclaiming, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass“ and “the time is at hand”? Messiah is declaring that the prophecies would start to be fulfilled shortly after the vision was given to John.
Did you know that the great theologians of the 16th-20th centuries taught that Revelation has been in the process of being fulfilled since the first century? People like Albert Barnes, Adam Clarke, John Gill, and Matthew Poole wrote whole Bible commentaries that prove historical fulfillment.
Dalton Thomas says that Revelation 12 gives a narrative of what happens in between the seventh trumpet and the bowls of wrath being poured out.
That’s out of context as he’s taking Revelation as one chronological layer. But there are four chronological layers which span from the first century until Messiah returns. Revelation 12-13 describes the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom: pagan Roman Emperors > antichrist beast Popes > false prophet Jesuit Superior Generals; who make war with Messiah and His saints.

Dalton Thomas says that the woman in Revelation 12 represents Israel giving birth to Messiah.
That’s false, as Revelation is describing events that take place after it was written. It’s pointing to the birth of Messiah’s Ekklesia of saints which was very painful. They endured ten persecution periods from the first century until 313 AD when Emperor Constantine stopped them.
From Messiah’s ministry until 313 AD is about 280 years. The gestation period of a human birth is 280 days. The tenth persecution period, which took place from 303-312 AD was the most painful as Diocletian sought to wipe out Messiah’s Ekklesia of saints. So we see how the birth of Messiah’s church was painful, especially at the end.
This matches the narrative of the church era of Smyrna, which endured these harsh persecutions during the ‘ten days of tribulation’ which were fulfilled during ten years from 303-312 AD.
This matches the narrative of the fifth seal martyrs whose blood symbolically cried out for vengeance against the pagan Roman Empire, which came during the trumpet judgments as army after army were sent to attack it, leading to it’s fall.
Dalton Thomas says that Revelation 13 describes the antichrist beast and false prophet.
Indeed it does, as it describes the antichrist beast Popes of Rome who rose to power over a sea of people, out of the ten kingdoms of the fallen Roman Empire. They reigned in civil power for 1260-years, from 538-1798 AD.
Since then the false prophet Jesuit Superior General, who rose to power out of the earth of the Vatican, has controlled the Roman beast kingdom, and is using the Vatican to gather the world under his authority.
Dalton Thomas says that people who have a dogmatic, academic, argumentative, conspiratorial thing, may not have a relationship with the Lord at all.
WOW! To make a claim like that is absurd! We are called to teach the truth of the fulfillment of prophecy and to expose people who are deceivers.
Dalton Thomas says this book is intended to stir our relationship with Jesus and to drive us close to Him, to love Him more, and to make us more prepared for His return.
He is doubled-minded, points to Messiah riding on a white horse in Revelation 19, which we should take literal, but then says that it’s not a proper question to ask if a literal sword is coming out of his mouth.
Coming on a white horse symbolizes victory, just like id did in the first seal when it is pointing to the victory parades of the Cretian Roman Emperors who during military victory parades rode on white horses and wore a laurel wreath crown.
By understanding how most of Revelation has been fulfilled in exacting detail during the last 1,900 years, we see proof of the validity of Scripture and the deity of Messiah! We see how our Heavenly Father and Messiah have been actively involved in the saints lives, as they’ve battled against the Satan-empowered Roman beast kingdom.
Dalton Thomas says that he was grieved after listening to American pastors teaching on Revelation.
I feel the same way as they’re deceiving people with the false, futuristic explanations that came from the enemy to deceived the end-times saints. Read How The Deceptions Spread
Dalton Thomas is well-spoken and seems very smart and sincere. But his explanations reveal that he is misled. I pray that he comes to learn the glorious truth about the fulfillment of Revelation, for in it we see the glory of Messiah.
Messiah’s apocalyptic vision is a war manual, designed to hide the explanation from those who should not understand it. It uses symbolic words that are defined in the Old Testament to point to a literal fulfillment. If you read Revelation only from a literal perspective, the interpretation is hidden.
Understanding the vision is like taking a Biblical final exam. If you’ve read the whole Word, you will have seen the symbolism that Messiah uses and can apply it to the fulfillment.
If you read Revelation as one chronological narrative, the prophecies seem out of sequence. That’s because it has four chronological layers, each of which spans from when it was written until Messiah returns.
This book explains the prophecies of Revelation on a timeline to help you see how the four chronological layers interact with each other, so that you can comprehend the whole vision.
You will learn how to identify who fulfills the role of the son of perdition, the antichrist beast, the false prophet, and the harlot called ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great.’ You will understand the proper context of the seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments; the little book of Revelation 10, and the two witnesses of Revelation 11.
Whether you’re a novice at Bible prophecy or someone who has studied it extensively, I provide an explanation that is easy to understand yet has the depth of verse by verse explanations to provide you the evidence you need to prove it out.
